Pac-12 preview: Talent, uncertainty will follow the league

The Pac-12's preseason favorites, Arizona and USC, have the talent to separate themselves in the league but must contend with the fallout of the FBI investigation that has rocked college basketball.

Utah HC Larry Krystkowiak used the analogy that cheating in college sports is kind of like being introduced to a "gateway drug." He said the money side is another factor, but there's almost an addiction to cheating for some. "You're introduced to alcohol, and you have a little marijuana, and next thing you know you're doing cocaine, and before you know it you're on 'Breaking Bad'. You think you can get away with something, and then you find out some of the things that are going on around you. I was told by a coach this summer -- and I've made the comment that I thought it was a joke; I realized as I walked away that it wasn't a joke -- if you're not cheating, you're cheating yourself. And I remember going, Ha ha, and then I went, Actually, that's probably true."

6'10" Filip Petrusev who plays at Montvetede Academy was very impressive this past weekend. He told ESPN that he made official visits to Charlotte, and Tennessee. He is considering visits to Virginia, Gonzaga, Utah and Creighton. The skilled forward scores on the block with back to the basket moves and shows ranged to the 3pt line. What really makes him special is his passing vision and willingness to keep the ball moving or make the assist.
